PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Hearts manager Robbie Neilson insists Gary Mackay-Steven’s arrival is all part of the long-term plan to become a leading Premiership team. The 30-year-old joined on a two-and-a-half year deal from New York City last week and could make his debut in the Championship trip to Alloa on Saturday. Neilson is also keen to recruit another striker this month to bolster his side’s title push. Hearts are on course for an immediate return to the top-flight after opening up a five-point gap at the summit. And Neilson admits he is targeting players that can help the side become a force to be reckoned with in the Scottish game. He said: “You should come out of every transfer window in a better position than before it opened. That’s what we are trying to do in this window. Gary Mackay-Steven coming in has given us that lift.

. “We have good players in the team already but we are still looking to add more. It’s really important we continue to develop the team. We want to win this league but also build a platform for seasons ahead.” Neilson, meanwhile, is encouraged that he will have the likes of Michael Smith, Josh Ginnelly and Liam Boyce in contention for the trip to the Indodrill Stadium. Smith and Ginnelly both faced lay-offs due to contracting Covid-19, while Boyce missed the defeat to Dundee on January 2 due to a leg muscle issue.
